Lulu's Rule of Poker #2 states: Don't bet what you can't afford to lose.
Dack thinks he can play poker. Lulu knows he can't because every time they play strip poker with her friend Angie, they always stop the game with Dack in his boxers. When Lulu goes to her dad's for the weekend, she gets a panicked phone call from Dack. He played poker with some other rich boys from the neighborhood, and now he's lost a prized possession.
Lulu, a poker goddess, agrees to play the winner in a rematch. When she arrives, she notices something a little strange about the other players, but nothing too out of the ordinary. She cleans house, taking back Dack's watch. Both friends think this is the end of the story; however it's only the beginning.
Soon, Lulu's in hot water--with her dad, her mom, and maybe her new stepfather, who just happens to be the mayor. Can she fix things before they get way out of hand?
THE POKER DIARIES feature rules of poker, a poker glossary, and rules for certain games. This novel is for anyone who loves poker, helping friends out of tough places, and for those just looking for a fun read.
